Patriots’ Danny Amendola worked as a runway model at New York Fashion Week
Fresh off a victory in Super Bowl LI last week, New England Patriots wide receiver spent Monday night participating in a fashion show by German fashion designer Philipp Plein at the New York Public Library in Manhattan.
The 31-year-old wideout wore an all-black outfit with boots and ear piercings for his trip down the runway, as his girlfriend Olivia Culpo watched nearby.
“Danny being hot per usual and me fangirling like a 4 year old,” she wrote on Instagram. “He looked so good.”

Amendola joined a host of other unusual runway models for the show, including rappers Desiigner, Young Thug and Fetty Wap, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, and Jeremy Meeks, AKA “the hot felon.”
“[Amendola] seemed confident,” said Alyssa Vingan Klein, Editor-in-Chief of Fashionista.com, who attended the show. “He was really chatty and friendly backstage with the models. …And I don’t think he screwed up the runway by walking the wrong way like Desiigner did.
“…He was definitely a lot shorter than most of the male models”

Looking good, Danny. Maybe another Super Bowl ring will tie that whole outfit together.
